See Through Camera

see-through-camera.jpg One of the top British companies has recently developed a camera that can detect weapons, drugs or explosives hidden under people’s clothes from 25 meters away in what could be indeed a breakthrough for the security industry. The T5000 model camera, created by the company called ThruVision, uses the so called “passive imaging technology” to identify any object by the natural electromagnetic rays — known as Terahertz or T-rays — that any object emits. This new high powered camera can also detect hidden objects from up to 80 feet away and is very effective even when people are moving around. It does not reveal details such as physical body and the screening is considered harmless, the company says. The technology, which has military and civilian applications and could be used in crowded airports, shopping malls or sporting events, will be unveiled at a scientific development exhibition sponsored by main Britain’s Home Office on the date March 12-13.

“Acts of terrorism have shaken the world in recent years and security precautions have been tightened globally,” said Clive Beattie, the chief executive of ThruVision. “The ability to see both metallic and non-metallic items on people out to 25 meters is certainly a key capability that will enhance any comprehensive security system.” The technology basically works on the basis that all people and objects emit low levels of electromagnetic radiation. Terahertz rays lie somewhere between infrared and microwaves on the electromagnetic spectrum and travel through clouds and walls. Depending on the material, the signature of the wave is different, so that explosives can be distinguished from a block of clay and cocaine is different from a bag of flour.
